Rethinking Education (Learning Design) with Challenge-Based Learning
Challenge-based learning enables learners to meet curriculum standards by engaging, investigating, and acting on a global challenge. In this workshop, we analyze examples of challenge-based learning in action and learn how to design a challenge-based learning unit.
CONNECT & ENGAGE
We will get an introduction to challenge-based learning, evaluate examples of Challenges, and explore how we can evidence learning in challenge-based learning. We will also learn to distinguish between challenge-based, problem-based, and project-based learning through real-world examples. We will also share examples from School of Humanity.
We will collaborate to design a mini-learning Challenge and map it to curriculum standards. We will look into best practices in designing the different phases of challenge-based pedagogy.
REFLECT & APPLY
We will explore how you can apply what you have learned in the context of your school and how you can design a challenge-based learning journey. We will discuss how we can integrate what we have learned in both the core curriculum and extracurriculars.
- Examine examples of challenge-based learning journeys, and draw key insights;
- Explore the latest research and industry inspiration behind challenge-based learning;
- Design examples of challenges that can be mapped to curriculum standards;
- Compare and contrast challenge-based learning with other pedagogies;
- Identify strategies for developing interdisciplinary challenges;
- Identify strategies for integrating challenge-based learning into one’s school curriculum.
